Conceived in 1999 and premiering in 2001, Tall Stories’ magical, musical adaptation of the award-winning picture book has toured the UK, Europe, North America, Asia and Australia – including runs in London’s West End, on Broadway and at Sydney Opera House. The London Times reviewed it as “irresistibly charming”.
The Gruffalo’s Child
Tall Stories’ adaptation of the sequel to The Gruffalo was created in 2005 and has also toured the UK, the West End and the world (including another trip to Sydney Opera House), receiving four-star reviews in Time Out, the Evening Standard and the Scotsman (among others). Songs, laughs and slightly scary fun for the whole family.
Follow the Gruffalo’s Child on her adventurous mission in Tall Stories’ enchanting adaptation of the much-loved picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.
From the creators of the Gruffalo children’s book, Stick Man is back by popular demand! Touching, funny and utterly original, this award-winning production features a trio of top actors and is packed full of puppetry, songs, live music and funky moves.
Mr Men and Little Miss
This brand-new show comes from two of the leading family theatre producers: Selladoor Family whose recent tours include Madagascar the Musical and James and the Giant Peach and New York-based Rockefeller Productions, the creators of The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show and Elmer the Patchwork Elephant Show.
For the very first time, join your favourite Mr Men and Little Miss characters as they leap off the page and onto the stage – as puppets – in this beautifully crafted and hilarious live stage show!
